Twin Turbo Studebaker 2009 Dyno Session

After installing upgraded turbochargers from www.timsturbos.com, we're back on the chassis dynamometer to retune for the new power. The car currently holds a SCTA Record at Bonneville for Altered Coupes running 500" or greater, forced induction engines: 241mph. It only needs another 5mph to qualify for entry into the 200mph Club at Bonneville, which is a difficult accomplishment. Thus, We added exactly 100hp and 100 ft-lbs of torque to the wheels, this time carrying it all the way to 7000RPM. This is a 515 cubic inch Merlin Big Block chevy. Megasquirt EFI with 150lb/hr injectors, a pair of modified GT38 turbochargers, external wastegates, custom air-to-water Intercooler. This car is built for landspeed racing.

Studebaker startup after 17 years
I found this 54 Studebaker in a driveway in Martinez CA. in 1999. This is the same car shown later in "My dad's old Studebaker", which, by the way, isn't really his dad's old car. His dad's car went to a close friend of mine.
